Heater suction cups leaching?

It's been about a year and a few months of running x2 300w heaters and I decided to swap them out for some brs heaters. While cleaning the 2 heaters under the sink I noticed 4 suctioncup holders kept leaching out and making a mess, both are 2 different heaters and 2 different types of suction cups. Just thought I'd share this.
Happy reefing!

I've seen this happen before with old suction cups too. This is why I prefer to use a fully submersible Jager or equivalent heater since cups will always fail over time. Less soft plastic in the tank always is good.
